Nyoka Gordon returns to the Catacombs with today's golden age adventure, "Doom in the Desert" from Jungle Girl #1 (1942), originally published by Fawcett Comics (and beginning their long association with this character). This story is also the opening chapter of a longer story arc which adapted Republic's PERILS OF NYOKA movie serial and in true cliffhanger fashion, I'm going to present it in its entirety (albeit over the course of several posts). The writer of this adventure is credited as "Rod Reed", but the artwork is by Harry Anderson. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
